Of prayer, and Thanksgiving

We set a table, here within our hearts,
inviting those we love, 
and those we know who need our prayers
and offer up our thanks
for all the grace that fills our lives
and lay before your feet
the hungers of the world, not just our own,
and bow our heads in sadness
for the losses we and others have sustained,
and for the opportunities to help that we've ignored,
then drink again your ever-present wine:
the wine of grace, of forgiveness, and love.
